Description

Your day begins in Westminster Abbey. Take advantage of pre-reserved tickets to visit England’s most hallowed church, marveling at the tombs of national heroes, religious and royal relics, and of course, hundreds of years of royal weddings, coronations and funerals. Witness the changing of of the Queen’s Life Guard, an elite cavalry regiment, mounted on exquisitely-bred, and specially-trained horses. As you watch the guards go through the ceremony, your guide will explain the significance of everything from the armor they wear to the colors on their uniforms. Then explore Trafalgar Square, the geographic center of London and one of the city’s most iconic public spaces. Your last stop, the Tower of London, is also the most impressive. Benefit from pre-reserved tickets and immerse yourself in 1,000 years of bloody royal feuds, improbable jailbreaks, jewel heists, menacing ravens and even a ghost or two. Discover hair-raising stories of this royal stronghold, jail, zoo and occasional execution block, including the mystery of two lost boys that will send shivers down your spine. As a final treat, pause to marvel at the Crown Jewels inside the Jewel House at the Tower). These aren’t just the largest collection of coronation regalia in the world, they are also the only ones in Europe that are still in use by a Royal family.
